The transition to Full Day Kindergarten offers numerous tangible benefits to our students, families, and community.
Academics: Full Day Kindergarten provides students with greater exposure to educational opportunities and experiences. Teachers can dive deeper into the curriculum, offer more robust learning experiences, and amplify their students’ success.
Social-Emotional Skills: A kindergartener is at a pivotal stage in their social-emotional development. The additional time afforded through a Full Day Kindergarten program allows the student to practice critical skills in a structured and safe setting. These skills include empathy, collaboration, resilience, adaptability, and critical thinking.
Families Prefer: The majority of our families need and want Full Day Kindergarten for their children. Beyond the academic and social-emotional advantages, students flourish in environments characterized by consistency, free from schedule disruptions and constant transitions.
Teachers Prefer: Full Day Kindergarten provides teachers with the opportunity to know their students better, explore their personal interests, delve deeper into subject matter, adapt curriculum to different developmental levels, practice social-emotional skills, and more.
